Dog of the Week: Bing

Bing (A12692643) is an adorable 1- to 2-year-old male pit bull terrier mix with the sweetest hazel eyes and an gorgeous light brown mask over his eyes.

But don’t let that fool you, he is not trying to hide from anyone — he has been ready and waiting for his forever home for quite some time now! He was found as a stray wandering around a neighborhood. He is a medium-sized, medium-energy boy that loves to be loved.

He isn’t super high energy and responds very well to correction when he gets jumpy or too excited, but it’s probably best that he meet children under 10 so we can make sure he understands that he needs to be gentle with them. He is great with other dogs and does not get inappropriately in their faces; he play-bowed and sniffed the dogs he met at the shelter and didn’t try to initiate play if the dog was intimidated or uninterested in him.

Bing is very eager to learn and is working on his basic commands. He would need to be cat tested before going into a home with cats. This gorgeous boy would make a wonderful addition to your home. Please come and meet him today!  Contact his Pen Pal, Ashley at Acctfosterdogs AT for more information.
